Visualizing Humanities Research (Workshop)

Humanists have long employed forms of graphic expression to represent research findings (e.g. charts, graphs, and trees). As the use of digital tools for computational analysis has increased, humanists have been exploring unique and novel ways to use visualization both to analyze and to present their research. In this workshop, we will:

  • review the different types of visualizations
  • consider the advantages/disadvantages associated with certain types of visualizations
  • examine how scholars have used visualizations in several humanities research projects
  • guide attendees through selecting an appropriate visualization type for their research

The workshop is conducted by Lee-Arng Chang, Data Visualization Specialist, and Leigh Bonds, Digital Humanities Librarian
